ELIZABETH, NJ – A massive fire at a waste management facility in New Jersey sent thick black plumes of smoke into the air Tuesday afternoon, one person missing after a five-alarm fire, according to fire officials.

A city spokesperson said the fire started just before 2 p.m. at the Waste Management transfer station on Julia Street in Elizabeth.

The fire broke out in the building on Julia Street in Elizabeth in the afternoon, quickly escalating to five alarms. City officials said nearby homes were evacuated as the fire broke out.

There were no reports of injuries, although the city said one person was not known as of 4:30 p.m.

Mayor Elizabeth Christian Buluge said the fire was expected to last for hours, and would not be completely extinguished until Wednesday.

Bulwaj also said the fire caused a partial collapse of the building’s roof.

Julia Street is closed to a large stretch between Taksim Street and Route 1.

The facility is a bulk waste transfer terminal, for larger items such as construction and furniture waste, according to Bollwage.
